Budding Writers Explore the World of Words

Two-days workshop on creative writing begins at Beant Singh Memorial Centre at Chandigarh

 The two-days workshop on creative writing organized by Chandigarh Literary Society (CLS) began here today at the Beant Singh Memorial Centre in Sector 42.

Inaugurating the workshop which had nearly 20 young participants from various schools of the city from class 8th to class 12th, Sumita Misra, chairperson of CLS, said that wordsare perhaps the most dynamic form of human creation that not only stimulates imagination, thoughts and instincts but also propels children into a unique realm of fantasy where they can weave their own tales and stimulate their right brain and creativity, she added.

The workshop is being conducted by noted writer and poet Chandra Shekhar Varma from Lucknow, who is also the grandson of Padma Bhushan Shri Bhagati Charan Varma, who organizes similar workshops around the country through his Think Ink Hat organization.

Chandra Shekhar has two poetry books and an English novel, Corners of a Straight Line published by Rupa, to his credit.

He would be stimulating creativity amongst participants and engage them in developing ideas into a story, while introducing them to the art of story telling, dialogue writing, and different genres.

Another author Neel Kamal Puri took the session on developing plot and sub-plots, and characters, while author Vivek Atray inspired and ignited the budding writers to make the best use of their imagination and create unique stories.

On Sunday, another well-known writer and journalist Suparna-Saraswati Puri would take the students on the journey of enhancing their vocabulary and developing command over language.

The workshop will conclude with the development of story ideas by each child, who would further develop the tale in the next three months and submit to CLS, for including it in an anthology of stories that would be published and released at the CLS’s signature event, Literati.
